Incredibly easy and YUMMY chocolate cake. No worries about getting the layers even or frosting just right -after all, we're on a boat! The black ink is from Aunt Midge. The red ink is Cousin Gail's easier version...Could it GET any easier???
|The chefs-Cousin Gail and Aunt Janet (Midge's sister)
1 pkg (18-1/4 oz.) chocolate cake mix
I used Duncan Hines dark fudge
1 jar (17 oz,) caramel ice cream topping (warmed) No need to warm it if you don't want to, room temperature is fine.
1 carton (8 0z.) frozen whipped topping (thawed)
3 Heath candy bars (1.4 oz each) , chopped or use a half bag of the Heath toffee chips which is about 8 oz (chips are already cut)
Bake cake according to instructions..use 13x9 baking pan. Cool on a wire rack.
Using the handle of a wooden spoon (or the handle of a crab mallet which is bigger) , poke holes in cooled cake. Pour 3/4 cup caramel topping into holes. Spoon remaining caramel over cake. I poured all of the caramel into the holes and none on top - do whatever you want. Top with whipped topping and sprinkle with candy. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
